The funny thing about B-Movies is that they become campy classics only when they were made with somewhat serious intentions. We crack up over "Plan 9 From Outer Space," but when they crank out contrived spoofs like "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes," we grow bored.

Laserblast is one of those classics in the spirit of Ed Wood Jr. Released in 1978, it stars the late Kim Milford (best known for popularizing the role of Rocky Horror in the Roxy version of "The Rocky Horror Show") as Billy, a handsome but shy and dysfunctional young man who comes across this groovy space gun that blows people & things to smithereens. There is a catch to this magical zapping-machine: with each blast, poor Billy gradually turns from the sweet & shy guy to a physically grotesque and murderous creature who begins taking out his enemies (not to mention a few innocent bystanders). Being that the film takes place the year after "Star Wars" was released, Billy even takes his aggression out on a small billboard advertising the film!

All this time these Claymation Space Creatures are cruising about in a spaceship, monitoring the earthly activity of their potent zapping machine, speaking in a way-out tongue that is never revealed.

As one who enjoys spotting familiar celeb faces in B-Movies, I had a field day with this film as the cast includes Roddy Mc Dowell (it always interested me how he appeared in as many campy films as he did quality films), Keenan Wynn, Gianni Russo (best known as Carlo in "The Godfather"), Eddie Deezen (character actor known for his ultra-nerd roles in movies like "Wargames," and most recently in "Polar Express"), and the late Cheryl "Rainbeaux" Smith, who appeared in scores of B-Movies throughout the 1970s. The movie was directed by Michael Rae, who went on to direct.....

I can remember my mom having this movie on during "Action Theatre" local channel at 12 in the afternoon when I was a kid. Why? She liked to put on lame movies to get her sleepy and help her take a good solid nap after church.

Well, I couldn't help but watch this little gem of a ludicrous sci fi laugh fest. Turtle aliens leave a LAWN MOWER GUN in the desert that can only be activated if you strap a glowing grenade necklace around your neck!!

Enter Billy the disenfranchised stereotypical 70's dude. He's mad at everyone kicking him around so he puts two and two together with the lawn mower shaped tube gun and the grenade and WHHHAMO!! Laserblast!! He is transformed into a green alien with pointed teeth, roars like a mountain lion, and leaps through the air in his Robert Plant outfit....

Billy quickly takes revenge on all who pick on him...

Blows away the deputy sheriff while the deputy's unloading in the outhouse

Shoots two punks in an old Chevy driving down the highway

Kills another hippy who picks Billy up while hitchhiking

Blows away multiple mailboxes

Shoots the newstands

Blasts an airplane after getting shot full of M-16 bullets

Engages turtle aliens at the end....

If you like movies like Plan Nine From Outer Space, Dracula Vs. Frankenstein, and other psychotronic cheesy yet fun movies, you MUST BUY THIS SUCKER and have a belly laugh. It's awesome. My wife HATES it when I put this movie on but I just can't help my guilty pleasure, watching good bad movies!! This is the cream of the crop!!

This is a movie in the general genre of 'Star Wars', but with no budget, script, or talent. Fortunately, it falls into the sub-genre of sci-fi movies so bad that it's entertaining. I remember first seeing this movie with the MST3K treatment, and enjoyed the cheesiness immensely. When I came across it on Amazon, I had to see it again, and was not disappointed. The plot involves a lost laser cannon and pendant set left accidentally on earth by two stop-motion turtles without shells from space and found by Billy, a reclusive loner who is taunted by the always annoying Eddie Deezen in his big screen debut. There is a scrawny love interest, a retired colonel who is nuttier than a fruitcake (hilariously portrayed by Keenan Wynn), a sinister government guy in a black Cadillac, a screen chewing performance by Roddy McDowall as a doctor, and perhaps the most irritating sheriff's deputy in screen history who gets exactly what he deserves in a most entertaining manner. In other words, every dopey stereotype in sci-fi is present and accounted for. Also featured prominently are some of the worst special effects in modern motion picture history.
Altogether, this is a laughable effort, played very seriously by all involved, thus further adding to the entertainment value of the DVD. The script is awful, the characters very over the top (especially Billy and Roddy McDowall), and there are some scenes so bad that you may have to watch them several times to really get their full effect, notably the explosions (always shot from multiple angles), and the aliens speaking their own language. This is a true sci-fi classic, just like the box claims; just understand that it's a classic because it's so bad it's good!
